The cards have been given to the students by teachers and will be returned through the schools to the County committee. Franklin county was the first county in the United States to in­ clude the school children in the Dimes drive. In 1944 the children raised a total of $3700, from which the 50 cents per capita quota was derived. In Saranac Lake the Dimes drive is under the chairmanship of Charles Cowan, superintendent of schools. The children will be contributing towards a $6000 Saranac Lake quota in the $20,000 Franklin county goal. H E A D S N. Y . D A I L I E S G R O U P ALBANY, Jan. 21 (^P)—Albert B.

The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi­ neers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire­ men and Enginemen and the Switchmen’s Union of North America, representing 125.000 railroad employes, have refused to accept the offer of the Railroads of a wage increase of 15%\ cents an hour. This is the same increase awarded 1,000,000 non-operating employes By an arbitration board in September, 1947. This is the same increase accepted by 175.000 conductors, trainmen and switch­ men by agreement on November 14, 1947. Agreements have been made with 1.175.000 employes, represented by nine­ teen unions. But these three unions, rep­ resenting only 125,000 men, are trying to get more. They are demanding also many new working rules not embraced in the settlement with the conductors and train­ men. Incidentally, the Switchmen’s Union of North America represents only about 7 per cent of all railroad switchmen, the other 93 per cent being represented by the Brotherhood of Railroaa Trainmen and covered by the settlement with that union. Strike Threat The leaders of these three unions spread a strike ballot while negotiations were stiU in progress. This is not a secret vote but is taken by union leaders and votes are signed by the employes in the presence of union representatives. When direct negotiations failed, the leaders of these three unions refused to join the railroads in asking the National- Mediation Board to attempt to settle the dispute, but the Board txx>k jurisdiction at the request of the carriers and has been earnestly attempting since November 24, 1947, to bring about a settlement. The Board on January 15, 1948, announced its inability to reach a mediation settle­ ment. 'Hie leaders of the unions rejected th e r e q u e s t^ fthfeMediatio n B oaxdto arbitrate. The railroads accepted. What Now? The Unions having refused to arbitrate^ the Railway Labor Act provides for the appointment of a fact-finding board by the President. The railroads feel it is due shippers, passengers, employes, stockholders, and the general public to know that through­ out these negotiations and in mediation, they have not only exerted every effort to reach a fair and reasonable settlement, but they have also met every requirement of the Railway Labor Act respecting the negotiation, mediation, and arbitration of labor disputes. It seems unthinkable that these three unions, representing less than 10 per cent of railroad employes, and those among the highest paid, can successfully maintain the threat of a par­ alyzing strike against the interest of the en­ tire country—and against 90 per cent of their fellow employes. The threat of a strike cannot justify grant­ ing more favorable conditions to 125,000 em­ ployes than have already been put in effect for 1,175,000, nor will it alter the opposition of the railroads to unwarranted wage in­ creases or to changes in working rules which'* are not justified. A glance at the box shows what employes represented by the Engineers and Firemen make. They are among the highest paid in the ranks of labor in the United States, if not the highest.
